"Styles Make Fights."
Stiff Jab began in 2010 as one of the first Tumblr accounts providing original content about boxing and mixed martial arts. Almost three years later, we’re a mult-platform magazine covering every level of the fight game. Our staff is ringside for most major fights on the East Coast. We also bring you regular reports on boxing, MMA, classic cars, scotch and beer reviews, and whatever else we feel like writing about.
We welcome original content from Tumblr users; simply use the “Submissions” link to left. We’re also seeking regular contributors and original reporting from writers and photographers with backgrounds in mixed martial arts or boxing.
If you’ve got a tip, a show you would like us to cover, a fighter we should highlight, a story to pitch, or need to get in touch with us for any other reason please contact us using the information below:
